The jury in Hunter Biden’s federal gun case will resume deliberations Tuesday morning to decide whether the president’s son knowingly lied on a form used to purchase a gun in October 2018.

Biden, 54, faces a maximum of 25 years in prison if convicted of all three felony charges: lying on a federal screening form, lying to a gun dealer and possessing the gun. But first-time offenders on non-violent charges are typically given shorter sentences.

The trial marks the first time a child of a sitting president is tried for a crime.

Jurors deliberated for about an hour Monday afternoon before court adjourned for the day at 4:30 p.m.

This came after the defense quickly rested its case Monday morning and moved into closing arguments, where both prosecutors and the defense laid out their cases.

Hunter Biden did not take the stand in his own defense.
